We've been delighted to hear about the continued success of Rob, one of our Year 12 pupils, as he played for an England U18 team in a home nations hockey series against squads from Ireland, Wales and Scotland.

The series took place over 3 weekends in July. An initial 4-1 loss against Scotland in Edinburgh was followed by a 2-2 draw the day after as the England team found their feet. A 3-2 win followed the next week as Rob scored the winning goal against the Irish team at Lilleshall, although this was followed by a loss against the Ireland team the next day.

As the series drew to a close with a final weekend against Wales at Millfield, Rob was selected as vice captain of the England team. A tightly contested first match led to a 1-0 victory for the Wales team however Rob led the English team to 6-1 victory the following day as they fought back, with Rob scoring 2 of the 6 goals to finish the torunament.

The series was a fantastic experience for the entire England team and credit must go to England Hockey for arranging such a successful tournament given the circumstances.

Congratulations Rob! We look forward to what next year will bring for your hockey.
